The quality of design, the attention to detail, and also the simplicity – it's about putting design excellence at the very top of the priority list.
Last year I found myself designing a carbon fibre battery case for an electric supercar, a railway track for 400kph trains, a 21-story timber skyscraper, and a floating wave energy generator.
People in Arup are very passionate about their work and tend to stay a long time. I count many of my colleagues as friends.
